Amazon FBA Ninja Review – Overview

Amazon FBA Ninja is a course that teaches you how to start, build, and scale a successful Amazon FBA business. It was created by Kevin David, a relatively unfamiliar internet marketer.

Kevin graduated college Summa Cum Laude with an accounting degree, starting at Big 4 accounting firm PwC. Accounting busy season’s 80-hour work weeks must’ve gotten the best of him because he jumped ship after a few years and became a privacy consultant for Facebook in Menlo Park.

He liked his Facebook gig more, but working for someone else didn’t sit well with him. When he discovered Amazon FBA one late night at the Facebook office, he pulled the trigger and started his own FBA business.

It didn’t take him long to achieve success.

The Amazon product research tool Junglescout even has a case study about the guy.

Since his FBA success, he started his online course company THATLifestyleNinja.

You probably noticed Kevin is driven by his hate for the 9-5 and his desire to free others from their desk jobs. He even says so on his website. All of THATLifestyleNinja’s courses show students how to quit their jobs and work for themselves online.

Amazon FBA Ninja is his Amazon FBA course. Should you buy it?

Product

Amazon FBA Ninja’s main content consists of 8 modules split into multiple parts, with each part containing multiple video lessons. The modules are Product Research with 3 parts, Suppliers and Shipping with 3 parts, Listing Optimization and Ranking with 3 parts, Product Launch Strategy with 2 parts, Email Follow Up and Review with 2 parts, Amazon PPC and AMS with 3 parts, Facebook Marketing with 3 parts, and Millionaire Seller Hacks with 3 parts.

All the course content is updated regularly to keep up with market trends and changes in FBA rules. Since you have lifetime access to Amazon FBA Ninja, all these updates are free for you once you buy the course.

There is also a bonus module that teaches topics like niche selection, software, and international selling. Other bonuses include access to a private Facebook group with over 4,000 other members and live Q&A sessions in that group. Bonuses can be accessed in the “STUDENT NINJA EXTRAS” module.

Product Research introduces just that. Product research.

Before you get to researching potential products, Part 1 gives you some Amazon FBA advice and resources. It also walks you through how to set up your account in a way that makes your FBA venture as lucrative as possible.

Part 2 dives straight into product research, covering everything from free research tools like Google Keyword Planner to research methods for targeting international markets. It even talks about Junglescout, an Amazon tool that I’ve also reviewed.

Part 3 is much shorter and covers miscellaneous information like fees and pricing mistakes.

Module 2 covers Suppliers and Shipping.

Part 1 preps you for supplier outreach. You’re given tips on supplier relations, templates to maximize supplier response, and some of Kevin’s shipping/supplier resources.

Then Part 2 shows you how to take these tips and templates to find a great supplier for your product. First, Kevin covers finding the cheapest Alibaba products and shipping them directly from China to the Amazon FBA Warehouse to save on product costs. The process is similar to dropshipping. Then, you’ll learn about how to strike deals with American manufacturers to save money and time on shipping if you live in the US.

Part 3 just covers product inspection. Kevin shares companies he trusts to inspect products for quality so you can save time inspecting all the products yourself.

Module 3 shifts gears towards Listing Optimization and Ranking.

In Part 1, there are a series of videos containing preliminary information about listing optimization. These videos show you how to “steal” competitor keywords while shielding your own keywords from their eyes. It’ll also touch on pricing and trademark issues, and of course there’s a list of listing optimization resources included.

Part 2 walks you step-by-step through creating a “world-class” Amazon listing. Keyword ranking, bullet copywriting, and mistakes to avoid are all taught. Kevin also shows you how to use product page videos to demonstrate the product in action to increase sales.

Part 3 covers what to do when you run out of stock and how to avoid doing so. It’ll also teach you what to do when other sellers “hijack” your listings by selling the same product your brand sells.

Module 4 get into Product Launch Strategy.

This module only has two parts. Part 1 gives a few lessons on video ads and finding customer questions about your products. As always, there are product launch resources.

Part 2 covers everything about the launch. Things like pricing, advertising, customer email collection, running sales, and product launch services are discussed.

Module 5 has 2 sections about email marketing, focusing on Email Follow Up and Reviews.

As always, Part 1 tells you what you need to know before creating email campaigns and gives you some email marketing resources. Kevin covers

Part 2 is basically a mini email copywriting course.  You’ll learn a few email marketing and copywriting tactics to build rapport with customers, maximize conversions, and bring back repeat business.

Module 6 gets into paid traffic through Amazon PPC and AMS campaigns.

Part 1’s really short. All Kevin does here is tell an anecdote about flying to Brazil by spending money on Pay Per Click (PPC) ads and explains why you need to use Amazon Marketing Services (AMS) to succeed in FBA.

Part 2 covers the entire ad campaign process. You start by learning keyword research, then Kevin shows you a ton of other details to be aware of when crafting your ad campaigns.

Then in Part 3, you learn about PPC campaign optimization. Kevin shows you how to find the keywords you’re ranking for to fine tune your ads, as well as how to optimize multiple campaigns in only minutes.

Facebook Marketing is a very broad topic, so it gets its own module in Module 7.

Part 1 of this module introduces you to Facebook ads. You’ll learn how to create custom Facebook ads audiences based on your real Amazon FBA customers as well as how to build highly specific Facebook groups relevant to your Amazon business.

Part 2 goes right into Facebook ads. You’ll learn how to become an expert at targeting the correct audience with Facebook ads. The process of building a sales funnel with Clickfunnels has its own video lesson as well.

Like any business course, Part 3 gives some introductory lessons on scaling and automation.

Lastly, there’s Module 8 that covers Millionaire Seller Hacks.

This module has tons of other details for polishing your business that didn’t fit in neatly with other modules.

Part 1 is all about prevention. It teaches how to prevent hackers from taking over your account, how to find the profiles of reviewers, and even how to remove negative seller feedback. That last one’s a bit questionable, but as long as you are selling useful products, then no big deal.

Part 2 is crammed full of other tactics to increase sales. For example, you learn how to get your products to show up in “frequently bought together”, incentivizing customers to bundle your products together. Another topic Kevin covers is using multiple accounts to mitigate the risk of having your seller account suspended. Other scaling topics like hiring virtual assistants and cross-listing on eBay are also taught.

And if your seller account gets suspended, refer to Part 3. Kevin’s got a few secrets for recovering your account after a suspension.

I like the structure of each module. Part 1 introduces you with information on the topic, Part 2 shows you how to apply the information successfully, and Part 3 teaches you how to tweak whatever the module covers to stay profitable.

The Bonus Module contains several more video lessons as well as some bonus resources.

The first lesson is about niche selection. Kevin teaches you how to identify untapped niches that have the potential to make you thousands.

Then, there’s a lesson entirely dedicated to software. You’ll learn how to use product research tools and other software to maximize profits and save time.

After that is a lesson on Amazon selling with no USA bank account. Sellers outside the US will find this lesson helpful.

Lesson 4 covers Merch by Amazon, Amazon’s print-on-demand service. The service is simple to use, but Kevin’s video lesson will teach you how to make $10,000 a month just selling print-on-demand products on Amazon.

The last lesson is for UK sellers.

There’s a Facebook group for the Amazon FBA Ninja community.

Here, you can discuss successes and failure with other students. You can also ask questions for either the group or Kevin to answer.

There are links to discounted FBA resources in the group as well.

This group is not to be confused for “FBA Ninjas!”, the public group for anyone interested in Amazon FBA.

There’s some good info in this group, but many have complained it’s mostly people showing off their progress. Nothing wrong with showing your progress to the community you’re in, but it’s not very helpful for everyone else.

In the Facebook group, Kevin holds live Q&A sessions.

Unlike other Facebook groups, Kevin claims he answers every single question his students send in. If true, that level of access is not seen in many other groups.

Upsells

Amazon FBA Ninja’s 1 true upsell is the Shopify Ninja course. Shopify Ninja has 5 modules that cover finding products, locating dropshipping suppliers, Shopify store optimization, marketing, and scaling.

Bonuses include bonus videos similar to Amazon FBA Ninja’s, a done-for-you sales funnel, and access to a Shopify Ninja private Facebook group.

Shopify Ninja’s structure is similar to Amazon FBA Ninja’s.

Pricing

Amazon FBA Ninja costs $1,997 up front. Alternatively, you can buy the course for 5 monthly payments of $599 if you can’t afford the $1,997 up front.

Shopify Ninja costs $997, or you can opt for 3 monthly payments of $497.

The sales page for Amazon FBA Ninja has a struck-through price of $3,994, but I don’t think the price is moving an inch from $1,997 anytime soon.

Affiliate Program

Amazon FBA Ninja has an affiliate program. Unfortunately, there is no data on potential affiliate earnings anywhere, not even in the affiliate program itself.

But if you join, the affiliate program provides you with all the marketing materials you need. All you have to do is use them to sell Amazon FBA Ninja to your audience.

For some reason, many of these course creators make it unnecessarily difficult to find their affiliate signup page, so here it is.

Just fill in your personal and payment information, click Create Account, and you should be ready to start as an affiliate.

Recap

Amazon FBA Ninja is not a scam. It’s a pretty good course, even for the price. Like I said earlier, you should be willing to invest in your education if you’re willing to shell out thousands to buy inventory ahead of time.

Unsure if you want to get Amazon FBA Ninja? I reviewed another Amazon FBA course, too. It’s not always open though, so if you can’t find a way to join, you might have to play the waiting game if you don’t want to buy Amazon FBA Ninja.
